Just check out the anger that is brewing over at townhalls:
Of course my headline is totally misleading. Instead of Healthcare and Democratic Townhalls, it’s actually Republican Townhalls and the issue of taxes, but my headline might get the media to actually notice that the Republicans are getting heat at townhalls over taxes and Medicare.
So, in this case, Rep. Dan Webster (R-FL) was confronted by many angry voters over the denial of raising corporate taxes or taxes on the wealthy. At one point he even threatened to kick out a voter, who kept pushing him on a question he refused to answer.
Where’s the media outrage? Where’s the flashing red light on Drudge or hours of “First Amendment violation” rhetoric on Fox?
Simple – the media don’t care! Think about why. All the media people stand to lose if corporate taxes are raised or the top 2% end up having to pay their fair tax burden. They don’t want people to know that there is a majority of Americans who are frustrated with the lower 98% paying for everything and getting more and more taken away.
If we can’t get news of this outrage out in the open, then people will continue to be complacent and think they are in the minority. We really need to push these stories so that everyone can take notice and the Republicans are forced to change their tune.
